“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.”~Henri Cartier Bresson
It’s been almost two years since I last photographed this beautiful family. We were scheduled for a session on Monday, but it was rainy and yucky, so we moved the session until Tuesday, and the day was just gorgeous. Now, as I’m editing the photos, there has been snow flurries. That’s Tennessee weather for you. I’m often asked what happens if weather is poor when a session is planned. The typical answer is that we will reschedule for a soon after the planned date as possible. Another option is to have the photos made inside, and I have also done fun rainy day sessions with umbrellas, but the typical action taken is to reschedule.
I love all my clients and all my sessions are special to me. But every now and then, I photograph a session that really moves me, and this is one of those sessions. Just knowing how far this beautiful family has come over the past two years, and to be able to capture sweet Arya playing with her adoring big sister Lucy, dancing the chicken dance and practicing her sign language…it’s just truly beautiful.
